John McCain fundraiser-bundler sentenced to 50 years for $1.2 Billion Ponzi scheme

Here is the latest update on Scott Rothstein, one of John McCain’s close friends, fundraisers and bundlers. According to available records, Rothstein raised over $109,000 for John McCain’s 2008 failed Presidential bid.

Rothstein was sentenced to 50 years for defrauding investors of $1.2 BILLION in an elaborate Ponzi scheme.

Rothstein was also a major contributor to Charlie Crist.

Patrick Pretty covered some of this story earlier this year including a list of auction items featuring John McCain and Charlie Crist memorabilia.

  1. Hmmm!

    Charlie K. has an ‘heir’!!

  2. Jane 001 says

    Very informative. Now we know why John McCain is currently running ads about JD Hayworth, “the lobbyist.” More Mcsmoke and mirrors. From Jack Abramoff to Scott Rothstein, McCain is intimately linked to the top of the heap among criminal campaign contributors. This also sheds more light on why McCain refused to criticize Barack Obama in 2008. His nails were just as dirty.

  3. Who would spend millions to defend his position with lies and exagerations, if they didn’t have a bunch to hide? John needs to retire, go home and put his AZ sandals on and call it a job done……

  4. john m should retiare just like bird kennedys, polsie.and all the other life time politions. i think we have had enough of them all

    I’m so glad someone else noticed the stark difference in McCain’s attacks (or lack of attacks on Obama) and his vicious attacks on JD. Frankly, I’m sick of hearing his half-truths and lies about JD.

  6. Yes, where was this McCain with the fire in his belly, making vehement attacks against someone from his own party? But who had to be nice-nice when running against Obama, someone who is diametrically opposed to what most of America stands for?
    Come on John, take a long needed rest and go back to one of your 7 homes. WE don’t need lifetime politians. If you are not part of the solution, you are part of the problem!
